Dare It To Scare You.

Discomfort, problems and comfort zones are only perceptions; they aren't immutable Truths. As you continue to succeed at difficult items on your priority list, your perceptions of what is possible and what is not will change.

The next item on your prioritized list of things to do needs to be promptly completed -- or it wouldn't be on your list in the first place. Don't go around it. You waste time and energy when you avoid doing what you know you should do. Arrange items on your to-do list in order of importance, then start at the top and work down. Make it a rule: never purposely skip an item just because you don't feel like doing it.

The items on your priority list are there for a reason. Focus on your objective rather than your "discomfort."

Today's Idea For Action is from the TQ Prioritize Color: Do What's Important Next -- Regardless of Difficulty.

Now, ask yourself the following three questions:

  1. What's the next uncomfortable step on your priority list?
  3. Have you developed a trail-blazer's attitude yet?
  5. What uncomfortable step are you committed to take today?

So, Just How Committed to High Achievement Are You?

Think about it. How well and how often do you actually do Prioritize Factor 6J? (Do What's Important Next -- Regardless of Difficulty.) No question, this is a major driver of personal and professional success.

A high commitment (6J rated 8 or better) suggests you are someone who is incredibly powerful. You consistently do whatever is next on your priority list -- regardless of how much you don't want to do it. You regard this as a personal challenge, to see if you can get it done as well and as quickly as possible. You know it needs to get done, so you waste no time hiding behind less productive tasks. You stay focused on the desired outcome, instead of the effort required, and pride yourself in being able to do just about anything for the right reason.

Or not?

A lack of commitment suggests you are someone who can talk yourself out of doing just about anything. There may be an excellent reason why the next item on your to-do list should be completed -- but you can come up with more reasons why it's better to put it off. It's always easier to do a different task that takes less effort or less courage. The problem is, you miss opportunities when you don't pursue that important task, or waste time on less valuable ones.

What happens when you do TQ Factor 6J more frequently?

You have more power. If there's anything you want done, you enter it on your list of things to do. Then you do it. That's true power.

You accumulate performance positives like "Disciplined, Dedicated and Courageous" -- immediately moving you towards the results you expect.

What happens when you fail to consistently do TQ Factor 6J?

You have less power. Important but difficult tasks are delayed, and the best of plans are put off indefinitely.

Negatives like "Undisciplined, Reluctant and Doubtful" start to take their toll on your performance -- quickly moving you away from the success you want.
